This was weird in all the best ways and I just loved it! It‘s like The Magicians meets Jessica Jones...🔥🧙♀️🕵️♀️
Afternoon reading!! 😊
I think I‘m going to break up with #botm when my credits run out. My box STILL hasn‘t shipped, and I confirmed it on the 31st. 😡 (Image is from Google)
Hooray for early #botm!!!🎉🎉🎉
This started out so strong for me. However, I found “Especially Heinous” too long and strange, and I never regained my momentum and enthusiasm for this collection. I wish I hadn‘t read it straight through, and had skipped around, saving that one for last. 😕
So, last night I had tickets to see Stephen and Owen King for their book tour of Sleeping Beauties. I had totally lucked out and got third row tickets and was ecstatic. After the event, everyone got a free book and we were told a few would be signed as a surprise. I GOT ONE!!!! 🎉🎉🎉🎉
This kind of stuff never happens, and I'm still super excited. It was like winning the lottery, but with books! 😎📚
This was an excellent beach read that I devoured over a long weekend, and an excellent twisty psychological thriller that kept me guessing right until the end! The comparisons to The Girl On the Train will be inevitable, but I actually liked this one much better!
I gave up on this one around 20%. It's really good, but I read this right on the heels of FINAL GIRLS and it's too much horrific crime for me. I'll definitely pick it back up again though. The premise was really gripping...just not the right book for my mood. 😕
I am going to hear Stephen King speak in September! I've read The Shining and Carrie years ago, and these are the two books of his I own (but haven't read). Are there any other "must reads" of his I should tackle before September?
Ok, I have a probably stupid question ?...what is the female narrator saying after she mentions each name in the audiobook? It sounds like "offset," or something. Do any of you guys know?
I loved this pick from last month's BOTM. As Lillian Boxfish walks through NYC on New Year's Eve, she recalls about the events that have shaped her life, and meets new people along her way and impacts theirs. It's a really charming read, and was perfect for curling up with a fuzzy blanket and a hot cup of tea. #botm
Not in the database, but not to be missed is NIGHTLIGHTS coming from Nobrow in March. It's both creepy and dreamy and one of the most beautifully Illustrated graphic novels I've seen this year. If you liked GHOSTS by Raina Telgemeier, you should definitely pick this up.
I've been racing through this book like a hot knife through butter (but have to keep putting it down due to ferrying kids about for early dismissals and delayed openings! 😫). I can't wait to see how this resolves itself. If this is an indicator of YA fiction this year, I'm all in for 2017.
Thank you, thank, you, THANK YOU @Mimi28 ! What a wonderful box of fun surprises! I love Ruth Ware, and I'm positively over the moon with that amazing backpack. 😍🌜#SecretSantaGoesPostal #WinterSolsticeBookExchange
